We spent one night here while roaming around the area. Property was clean and so were the rooms. There is a fairly new Tops across the street that has a very nice deli. A well stocked package store was next to the Tops. There is also a family restaurant a very short walk up the road. We didn't personally try it but neighbouring rooms had good comments. The property is very close to Watkins Glen State Park which is a must see. Also don"t miss the falls at Montour Falls just a few miles south from the motel.
The motel itself is as the name suggests budget but it fit the bill for that night. It is situated at the south end of town on a fairly busy road so road noise is an issue during the day but we found it was quiet from about 10pm to 5ish the next morning. Being an early riser this was not an issue. We found the staff to be friendly and had no issues at checkin or out. As I mentioned the room was very clean as was the bathroom. Our room had a fridge and microwave while our friends just had a fridge. Luck of the draw perhaps? My only issue and I'm being picky here is you have to go to the lobby for coffee as the rooms had no coffee makers. A bit of a pain for we early birds but not a deal breaker. The breakfast was basic but again enough to get you going in the AM.
In short I would stay again
